Played my first 2 games of samurai tonight. Both games were two player games with my father. The first was a learning game which is to be expected. I ended up winning but only by default.
Game number two I started to get into the game and the strategies. My father started the game by focusing on EDO. I decided to let him was use his tiles to surround the whole city. I could tell that as a result he would earn 3 high helmets, so I focused on the other two resources for the rest of the game. The game ended early when he captured all the high helmets but by then I had gained majority in two out of three resources and took the game.
I really enjoyed the game and look forward to further plays.
